Can I create a store copy to test an app?

Is there a way to copy my store so that I can test an app?  A sandbox store?

There's not an easy way to make an exact copy of your store -- you'd have to complete a full migration. 


However, depending on the app, you probably don't need to make a full copy of your store. 


You can definitely make a duplicate copy of your theme (so that if the app adds any coding, and then you remove the app, you can easily revert to the previous/duplicate copy of your theme).


As far as a test environment goes -- if you sign up for the Shopify Partners program ( then you can create a "development store" that you can use to play around and test things (separate from your actual store).
